I had started another blog several years ago at http://myfamilyresearchadventures.blogspot.com/, but when google plus ended some how I messed things up and now it is very difficult for me to get into that blog to post. So I decided to start a new blog that I can get to easier.

Another Passenger List that lists John E Bionaz as a passenger

I said in a previous post my great-grandfather John Elere Bionaz made several trips back and forth to Italy. This passenger list if for 1912 and gives is naturalization information.

Year: 1912: Arrival: New York, New York: Microfilm Serial T715, 1897-1957; Microfilm Roll: Roll 1938; Line 1; Page Number:142; Ancestry.com. New York, Passenger Lists, 1820-1957 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Ancestry.com Operations, Inc., 2010. Accessed 31 October 2015

List of United States Citizens
(For The Immigration Authorities)
S.S. La Savoie sailing from Havre (no date on page)
Line 1 Bionaz, Giovanni, age 46, male, married, Naturalized; Naturalization Information - 4th January 1909, State of PA, Cambria County: Address in United States - Box 116, South Fork PA, Beaverdale

I know the name is not John Elere, but Giovanni is an Italian form of John. The Naturalization date matches the date on his citizenship papers and the papers say John Ellere Bionaz. Also John E Bionaz's family was living in Summerhill Township, Pennsylvania in the 1910 Census.
Beaverdale is a town in the Valley of South Fork in Summerhill Township, Cambria County, Pennsylvania. In fact his son John C Bionaz birth record lists the place of birth as South Fork.
